    • K9EQ/Chris : Text entry shut down until next net due to spam. If it isn't working at the start of the net, you may need to remind K9EQ to re-enable it. 🙂
    • K9EQ/Chris : 73 all
    • Steve K3FZT : Thank you Shane, Chris, Odis for another wonderful net.
    • W4IOD/Odis : Everyone have a good evening and stay safe 73 de W4IOD SK SK
    • K9EQ/Chris : John Kruk is not actually the sales manager anymore. He stepped down from that about a year ago. Hans Rooker is now the sales manager. He's busy, he also covers aviation and marine.
    • Steve K3FZT : Chris--I've carried the radio in the belt clip for 3-4 hours/day going back and forth from shack to workshop to barn to errand in car and haven't had it pop out of the clip yet. It has taken me most of a week to figure out how to take the radio off the clip without altering anything. I still hit the top knob sometimes.
    • W4IOD/Odis : You can call if you can get someone to answer he just says contact Yaesu directly...he doesn't specify outside of that Steve
    • Steve K3FZT : Odis--Is there a person to address directly or just send a letter to California?
    • W4IOD/Odis : He's not much help on those type of issues seems to be his SOP
    • W4IOD/Odis : John will probably tell you to contact Yaesu directly.
    • K9EQ/Chris : That probably won't do much.
    • Steve K3FZT : Chris--I've written John Kruk.
    • K9EQ/Chris : It seems a letter writing campaign may be needed. I know at least one person with a 3 that WOULD HAVE upgraded had the 5's BT been better.
    • Steve K3FZT : Bluetooth on FT5D is the same as on the FT3D: the only BT profile supported is "Headset" not "Handsfree" though they use the term "handsfree" in their marketing presumably to indicate the PTT and VOX functionality. No joy for those of us with hearing aids who need the BT Handsfree profile.

    • K3FZT/Steve : Thank you. 73 all.
    • K3FZT/Steve : Thank you. I'm not concerned about the scan name. I could see it might need some thought if traveling, but when local it surely won't be an issue.
    • N0ANE : "mem scan" or "vfo scan" Not an issue to me!
    • N0ANE : Congrats, Steve. Sounds like they will be a wonderful HT. Yaesu has listened to concerns that were voiced with the FT3. People are making an ridiculously huge deal about the scanning no longer showing frequencies but simply indicating "mem scan
    • K3FZT/Steve : Just got my FT-5DR from HRO. Came with an extra belt clip in orange. Just downloaded the RT Systems software for it. Battery charging.

    • AI5AI-Don : Howdy everyone from Texas 08/23/2021
    • VE3IGN / Don : Great Net, 73' all
    • VE3IGN / Don : Keep all your quality built radios before covid, having to replenish may cost and quality may not be there.
    • VE3IGN / Don : Since COVID-19, prices on everything has sky rocketed.
    • VE3IGN / Don : Wow, guess those radios are gems. Excellent resale value.
    • K3FZT/Steve : When I put together a go box I'll be looking for another FTM-100, but right at the moment, pricing on QRZ is out of wack. Today someone put up an FT-100 for $425.
    • VE3IGN / Don : Lol, must gotta hide em, "Honey why do you have so many FTM-100s?" say the wife.
    • N0ANE : I have five of them and still married. Love them!
    • VE3IGN / Don : Yesss, that's why I have 2 of them...one node and other mobile/go box.
    • N0ANE : The price of the FTM-100 was much better for a node investment.
    • VE3IGN / Don : I do believe the FTM-300 replaced the FTM-100
    • N0ANE : Still waiting for the FTM200. We need the FTM100 replacement more than anything to support Yaesu C4FM interest.
    • N0ANE : The literature also addresses loud audio of 1 watt. Seems to address complaints about FT3 audio.
    • N0ANE : HRO Price shows$480. Ouch
    • VE3IGN / Don : Chris there is a picture on Gigaparts
    • K9EQ/Chris : Text entry shut down until next net due to spam. If it isn't working at the start of the net, you may need to remind K9EQ to re-enable it. 🙂
    • K3FZT/Steve : 73 de K3FZT/Steve and Thank you. A great net and learning experience this evening.
    • AI5AI-Don : Good evening everyone. 73
    • K9EQ/Chris : 73 all
    • KN4RFJ/Shawn : 73 all
    • W4IOD/Odis : Everyone have a good evening and stay safe 73 de W4IOD SK SK
    • K3FZT/Steve : yep. There are still a few 6M FM repeaters around w/vertical polarization and my current 6M antennas are horizontal for FT8 mostly and a little bit of SSB.
    • KN4RFJ/Shawn : Understood, assuming you mean 6m coverage as in 6m TX
    • K3FZT/Steve : Aircraft band would be nice. 6M too.
    • K9EQ/Chris : Okay, I think that's why I didn't want the Diamond. I wanted the coverage down to 100 MHz plus 6 meters.
    • K3FZT/Steve : Thanks, Shawn.
    • KN4RFJ/Shawn : Diamond also makes a miniature discone, the D220R, I believe. It is about 2ft tall, still receives well on all bands. TX is 2m and up. The small size may be wife approved ;D
    • guest_5127 : Hi
    • K3FZT/Steve : 🙂
    • K3FZT/Steve : I've been having great fun with my SDR-Play and some wire. I have to think about where I can put a discone that my XYL won't object. K9EQ which Discone did you put up. I like the idea of 6M coverage, too.
    • KN4RFJ/Shawn : Good evening Odis!
    • W4IOD/Odis : Hey Shawn over in Bardstown
    • N0PXT/Shane : I run my node with an HT antenna so it can only handle 10 watts anyways.
    • KN4RFJ/Shawn : That will be good. I have done the same recently and it has made a significant improvement in temperature at high duty cycles.
    • N0PXT/Shane : Definitely use the fan stand. I only turn the fan on during this net otherwise my radio does fine on 5 watt the rest of the week. Just don't connect to Americalink 🙂
    • K3FZT/Steve : Thank you. I have an Yaesu SMB-201 fan stand that I can set the radio into.
    • KN4RFJ/Shawn : The 100 definitely gets hot, even on 5w. Probably best kept at home where it can be used with a booster cooler.
    • W4IOD/Odis : HowDE Don
    • W4IOD/Odis : Hello Steve

    • N0PXT/Shane : Yeah same here. Just north of St. Paul up in Hugo. And, yes the air quality hasn't been the best lately.
    • N0KEW/Kyle : Saint Paul MN
    • N0PXT/Shane : Where are you located Kyle?
    • N0KEW/Kyle : Man our air quality is getting a little bad again. This is a bummer.

    • K9EQ/Chris : K7LW: Should work okay. Out here mesh is being used quite a bit for a lot of things.
    • AI5AI Don : Good night everyone from Texas! 73
    • K9EQ/Chris : 73 all
    • K7LW : Y'all have a great evening, stay cool and stay safe! 73
    • W4IOD/Odis : Everyone have a good evening and stay safe 73 de W4IOD SK SK
    • K7LW : That's what I was thinking with the IMRS and MESH. Since it's basically an intranet anyway, should work just fine. I'm getting ready to link five repeater sites using microwave 5GHz links, and setting up a MESH backbone. Just curious if anyone experienced any hiccups.
    • K7LW : There shouldn't be a room with a PDN.
    • AI5AI Don : Yes,I heard that. That's a NO NO!!
    • K9EQ/Chris : Don: He was running 5 watts on the FT2D.
    • K9EQ/Chris : If the network is doing its network thing (low ping times, minimal loss of packets, etc.), there shouldn't be any problems. Like other Internet applications, IMRS shouldn't care about the type of network.
    • K7LW : Has anyone used LMRS with a MESH Net? If so, any notable issues?
    • K7LW : GE All, hope your staying nice and cool where your at.
    • AI5AI Don : Bingo!!
    • AI5AI Don : was he running high power?

    • AI5AI Don : Good Night all
    • K7LW : Have a great evening everyone, and stay safe!
    • N0PXT/Shane : 73 all. Have a great week.
    • KN4RFJ : Good night all!
    • K7LW : Absolutely,
    • W4IOD/Odis : Everyone have a good evening and stay safe 73 de W4IOD SK SK
    • K9EQ/Chris : Pretty much anything in the rack needs to be double shielded - especially with the incredible sensitivity of today's receivers. It's also a good idea to keep cables carrying power away from the Rx cable.s
    • K7LW : The double shield is nice for reducing potential RFI issues.
    • K9EQ/Chris : And I agree with using 214 for jumper cables, especially if power is involved.
    • K7LW : Or Lynn for that matter. LOL
    • K7LW : I agree totally with that. If it's a tight spot, and a relatively short run I use LMR-400.
    • K9EQ/Chris : Oh, hardline is definitely better. Unfortunately the Navy has more money than Chris has.
    • W4IOD/Odis : For short runs where you need flexibility this works good for mehttps://www.dxengineering.com/parts/dxe-214
    • K7LW : You've heard the old saying about your weapon having been made by the lowest bidder? 😛
    • W4IOD/Odis : 🙂
    • K7LW : Government issue, need I say more? LOL
    • W4IOD/Odis : Buy better RG 214 🙂
    • K7LW : In all fairness this was in use aboard ships. So I'm sure that was a factor. But overall hardline does have better longevity.
    • K7LW : When I worked for the Navy we used to change out the RG-214 right about the 5 year mark, and replace it with fresh stuff.
    • K9EQ/Chris : Hardline is definitely better. I would question the 5 years. I've rarely had problems with LMR-400 even after 10 years.
    • K7LW : GE Odis, how ya been??
    • W4IOD/Odis : GE Lynn
    • K7LW : Hardline will outlast regular coax as well. Average life of coax before it starts to break down is 5 years. Hardline is considerably longer life.
    • KN4RFJ : I showed up late tonight, but as always, great info coming down
    • K7LW : I have six repeaters all running 7/8" hardline. I'm planning two more sites and plan to use the same cable.
    • K7LW : I would highly suggest calculating how much of a run your going to make, then order the cable with connectors already installed.
    • K7LW : With that, you'll also need a tool to prep the ends. The one I have I picked up "used" on eBay for $80
    • K7LW : Once you start getting into Hardline in general expect to pay upwards of $70 ea per connector for some cable.
    • KN4RFJ : Also, aren't LMR-600 connectors quite expensive?
    • K7LW : Works great
    • K7LW : I also use 5/8" linkage between the equipment.
    • KN4RFJ : Evening all
    • KN4RFJ : 1/2" hardline isn't too bad a price. OK for 100-200 ft
    • K7LW : I used 7/8" Heliax on all of my repeaters. Alittle more $$ but well worth the trouble in the long run.

    • K7LW : Yep, but judging from the amount of family that showed up they both lived good lives.
    • K7LW : Glad I picked up an extra FTM-300
    • W4IOD/Odis : Very sad
    • K7LW : The Lady across the street from me passed away this past Thursday, and a close friend of mine lost his mother this past week. Talk about a Mothers Day buzz kill! Both great Lady's, sad to see them go.

    • W4IOD/Odis : I'm surviving Lynn & you?
    • K7LW : Yep, I had to change my room to "Analog Only" when I hung a PDN on it for one of my repeaters.
    • W4IOD/Odis : Yes it takes the HRI 200 to use an analog rig

    • K7LW : The PDN's won't work with analog radios
    • K7LW : Make sure he knows it has to be a "Digital" mobile unit, ie FTM-100, 300, etc
    • K7LW : He could setup a PDN and be good to go
    • K7LW : LOL Good, cause white beards are always in style.
    • K0ORK/Chuck : OK I do resemble that remark
    • K7LW : Coming from a fellow "Old Guy" I'll take that as a compliment. 🙂
    • K0ORK/Chuck : you old guys are good
    • K7LW : I listen to the hum of the transmitter, and the glow of the finals to judge the power out of my transmitter. 😉
    • AI5AI-Don : Ask on the net Richard
    • Richard -KE8QBR : is there a wish list? I'd like to see the power level in color, since I can't tell what power level I'm at while driving
    • Richard -KE8QBR : new ham , just picked up a 300. Some questions?

    • N9HFL/Jim : Good Evening Everyone! Just wanted to see how the chat function works.

    • K7LW : I've been called worse and shot at for less. LOL
    • W4IOD/Odis : lol
    • K9EQ/Chris : K7LW: We'll just call you "LW".
    • K7LW : I leave my name out on purpose just to see if the other station was paying attention when I told them. 😛
    • K7LW : Okay, all of the nodes in our system out here re-boot every night at 0300. But the PC that is hosting the room is at my place. So every now and then the room goes nuts by flashing in and out. I just reboot the router and the PC (again) and it fixes it.
    • W4IOD/Odis : It stopped for 11 hours today and it started doing it again 2 hours ago.
    • W4IOD/Odis : It does it automatically every Sunday morning at 03:00 eastern router has been rebooted.
    • K7LW : All I've been drinking is ice tea I swear!
    • K7LW : Router, sorry,
    • K7LW : Just a thought, did you try re-booting your server?
    • K7LW : Ah okay, yep, your right, probably no easy fix then.
    • W4IOD/Odis : GE Lynn, I doubt that will work for me it hasn't been updated in a long while. Running W7 here.
    • K7LW : Of course the ultimate fix would be for Yeasu to release a LINUX version of WiresX, but I digress....
    • K7LW : The fix is to simply run Windows update again, and see if you can blow past the previous update that originally caused the problem.
    • K7LW : I had the same thing, and I've heard it mentioned by a few others as well.
    • K7LW : If you check Odis you might find out that the changing offline/online is caused by a recent Windows update.

    • W9AUV Terry : controlled. There is a DIN connection and cable that can be connected to any Fusion capable radio. The new HRI-300 gives the user wires-x connectivity to the internet. There is also an external speaker jack and an rj11 microphone jack for use without having a radio connected. No particular computer or operating system is required to use the HRI-300 other than when making system setting changes
    • W9AUV Terry : Yaesu announced their latest new product today, the HRI-300. It is a self contained hardware device that has a hardwired ethernet interface as well as WIFI ethernet connectivity. It comes standard with a USB port that allows initial setup of the device. Once initial settings are made the user can control the device through a web interface in a similar way that home wifi routers are set up to be
    • W9AUV Terry : Yeah I was the one who posted this on April 1.
    • Randy N4TDT : you guys...all of you...are terrific. best way to get the fusion info first hand.. THANKS
    • Randy N4TDT : yes, Chris - listening
    • K9EQ/Chris : Randy: What you ask is certainly possible. We'll address it on the net assuming you are listening there.
    • W4IOD/Odis : No problem Kevin that's not an issue.
    • N0ANE : I think it's up to net control. That's how nets work.
    • K9KWP - Kevin : My bad folks, I didn't know about the "no hotspot" rule, sorry.

    • Randy N4TDT : I've got a question for the NET. Our local club....Sarasota Emergency Radio Club (serc.org) has a monthly NET. We have a Fusion Repeater and I"m curious if its possible to "simulcast" the NET on our local RV frequency and on a room established on our Repeater. Many of us in Florida are gone for the summer and would like to participate in the local NET. Any possiblities?

    • W4IOD/Odis : Everyone have a good evening and stay safe 73 de W4IOD SK SK
    • W4IOD/Odis : I already do
    • K9EQ/Chris : It will work with Pi-Star. YSF works directly, FCS takes a formula to convert the numbers. You'll need a separate bank for YSF reflectors that have different #'s than the WiRES-X room and for FCS.
    • Ian W7OLI : I have 4 sticky notes that I am currently looking at
    • K7LW : Not to worry Odis, as the years go by you'll learn to appreciate the value of sticky notes more and more. LOL
    • K9KWP - Kevin : I think it doesn't work if going through a Pi-Star hotspot, but only for DRI-200. I do believe.
    • Ian W7OLI : LOL
    • K7LW : Hickory Dickory Dock, The Ham was setting his clock. The clock struck 1800Z so the Ham said; "Screw this 20 meters is open, I'm off to HF!" And that solved that...
    • Ian W7OLI : I found it
    • Ian W7OLI : Where is the help section
    • K9EQ/Chris : HamOperator.com
    • Ian W7OLI : Can I have the link pls I am not familiar with the website
    • Ian W7OLI : ok
    • K9EQ/Chris : HamOperator.com has a document about setting the clock in the help section.
    • K9EQ/Chris : Also don't know which of the two it would pair with.
    • Ian W7OLI : I have a query for the group how do I set the date and time on my ft3dr I tried to set it but it didnt work
    • K9EQ/Chris : The Bluetooth radio in the FT3 uses the very basic hands-free protocol. So the AirPods would need to support that. It will probably suck their batteries since the AirPods must use standard Bluetooth 2.1.
    • KM6ARL : Hello All, has any confirm that apple AirPods work with FT3D?
    • K7LW : We're getting ready to link all of our machines using Ubiquity radios (5GHZ) but I would REALLY like to nix those alarms before we finish linking the machines.
    • K7LW : I would agree with that. Now if they could only find a way to tone down those annoying alarms when using MRLS
    • K9EQ/Chris : Well, what you have now definitely has bugs. I think there are fewer problems with RF linking vs. direct HRI-200.
    • K7LW : That would make sense. Before I retired we used to routinely run a BERT on a new channel prior to putting in service.
    • K9EQ/Chris : I believe it was triggered by high BER during a WiRES-X command transmission.
    • K7LW : Okay, I was just curious. We have five repeaters in our system, and I wanted to hold off installed the update until I was sure it was bug free.
    • K9EQ/Chris : Yes
    • K7LW : That was after you had installed the firmware update?
    • K9EQ/Chris : Otherwise there are not many reports. The firmware update seems to have solved most of the problems. Why do you ask?
    • K9EQ/Chris : I had one which was a lockup with Tx on. Good news was that I could reset it via the WiRES-X software. (Should state this is HRI-200 direct connect.)
    • K7LW : That's what I thought, but I haven't heard of anything else happening.
